The New Testament Letters
The word Aepistole is a Greek word that means Aa written message.
From the word Aepistole comes the word Aepistolary which is used top describe this specific form of literature.
This where we get the term Aepistle@ from, which refers to the letters in the NT.
With a slight grammatical change, Paul transforms his letters into Christian terms:
He changes the usual Ajoy(chara in Greek) and Apeace@ (eirene in Greek) to Agrace (charis in Greek) and Apeace@.
